. the sequencing done right on this cut spending cuts and tax reform. things sound great and they're moving along now. but joe, as we talked about earlier, you're going to have reticent democrats. and even key congressional races who are going to slow down a bit and saying, look, i want immigration and guns dealt with, what are we doing about the economy and the budget, the debt, and tax reform? >> and this is, richard haas, you can only push people so far, i mean, not the republicans' best friend. this weekend said democrats you're about to lose me. i pay 40% federal, 15%. well, i hear we have it cued up. let's go. this is bill maher this weekend. >> -- actually do pay the freight in this country. i just saw the statistics, something like 70%. and here in california, i'm just going to say, liberals, you could actually lose me. it's outrageous what we're paying. over -- i'm willing to pay my share, but yeah, it's ridiculous. >> and not only that -- >> wow. >> people like bill maher pay 55% in california, people in new york pay over 50%. in new jersey, why is a republican sitting at 70% plus appro
meltdown. the parliament rejected an unprecedented tax on bank deposits. that was a key part of the eu bailout terms. the finance minister is in moscow today with mounting speculation that russia could step in with a safety plan to safeguard russian deposits in cyprus. steve sedgwick is in moscow where he caught up with the finance minister there an hour or so ago. steve? >> they turned to russians once again. there's a loan on the table from russians dating back from 2011 so it's not the exception to it the rule for the cypriots to turn to the russians. the russians themselves are indignant they weren't brought into talks. let's hear what he had to say earlier on about the state of the current talks. >> first meeting very constructive. very honest discussion. we underscored how difficult the situation is and we'll now continue our discussions to find a solution by which we hope we will get some support from russia. >> in terms of that support, are we talking about a change of terms for the current existing 2.5 billion euro loan and an extension of 5 billion loan in addition to that? >
as it could have been. there was talk at the beginning of the whole crazy mess last week that they would tax mom and pop depositors with less than 100,000 in the barng. they did nothing wrong. they did not get the banks in that mess. a lot of outrage about that. protests in the street, et cetera, et cetera. we're now trying to grab those funds above 100,000 euros and the rub here is that there's at love russian offshore money in cyprus. that's what the authorities are trying to grab. >> parking money. >> i'm getting very nervous. >> to pick up on what you're saying about what you call the tax in that first proposal, a lot of the critics said it is not a tax. that goes to the core of this. the entire financial system is based on trust. the average consumer isn't worried as much about bond yields. the trust when they put money into the bank, they can take it back out. how much did the floating of that proposal cut against that trust? i think hugely. i wrote a column about this this week. i think if you're an italian or a spaniard or in another potentially beleaguered european country, you're w
the budget over the next ten years. >> but no tax increases. >> no tax increases. the president already got $650 billion worth of tax increases january 1st. he got a trillion dollars worth of tax increases in obama care. this year the federal government will bring in more revenue than any year in our history and yet we're still going to have a trillion dollars budget deficit. spending is the problem. >> the white house says in response, yes, it's true. taxes went up more than $600 billion over ten years at the end of the year but it is also true the white house put $1.5 trillion worth of spending cuts in their budget. the truth is you're both right. i mean, they have offered spending cuts. the taxes did go up. it still hasn't made enough of a dent. you still have to sit down and do something. >> right. i think we're doing our budget this year. actually we're doing it this week here in the house. our budget will balance in ten years. we're going to pass our budget. hopefully the senate will pass their budget. except their budget never comes to balance. the president's budget never comes to b
not confiscate it as cyprus tried to do however there are plenty of ways to get at it. taxes, you're forced to invest in government securities and under the guise of the financial systems, yes, it's a valid concern and the bank defenders will not acknowledge it u and we've got the dow up 39, 40 points at the moment, a shrug from the stock market at the moment. >> yes, it is. stuart: you think this has no impact on the stock market, more on gold and banking stocks, you think? >> i think so, again, what it does, it calls into question the integrity of the financial community and that's what central bankers and legislators fear most. it's not the markets themselves, it's fear of the market and fear of stability because that is what drives confidence and one thing that bernanke can't afford to lose right now. stuart: here is what i think might happen. a no vote, the russians step in, europe says we can't have russia, and they step in. >> i think a power play and progression of events, but i would not count out the chinese in this one. stuart: keith fitz-gerald. thanks. the latest proposal from

of the little things we saw like a vote yesterday in the senate to repeal the medical device tax in obama care, not going to be binding. so even though they took dozens and dozens, they considered more than a hundred amendments in the last 24 hours, none of those will have effect. t was mostly symbolic. host: we go to james. caller: everybody is complaining about government shutdown and all the situations we are dealing with. i want to ask the question why isn't anybody going back to the root of this situation when we got into this with president bush with illegal war. now president obama is bringing the soldiers back and the war is over. where are the funds from that to be utilized back into society and all the oil we got from you is dam hugh sane. why isn't going back to the fact the reason we got into this is what happened with bush and his administration and obama had to pull us out of that. nobody was complaining about hutdown and all these problems that happened. host: we'll leave it there. guest: republicans were hitting deficit spending that the budget that the cr isn't addressing the

of what was supposed to be a tax piece. it restores many of the cruel automatic spending cuts. all is missing is a line like thank god for the democrats. then it was also considered a cheese head. it starts out fair and factual enough. under the rhine plan, the government subsidizes it. the only famous unnamed critics who say all of this would mean ever shocking. he is heartless and soulless and probably the double in pinstripes. it is one thing when they say it was all but a sham. it is another thing for them to prove that it is an even bigger sham. they are darn near inbred watching politicians who continue to say that we don't have a spending problem. and one that is only trying slow down the growth of the spending. fair and balanced. try over and out. dick armey says that he is over the top of the house of representatives. i am not saying give republicans a pass. i am saying to treat them equally and with the same ferocity. and i do not. >> thing that is most frightening about what you just read is that this has become the norm. i want to thank you for bringing this up. even ba

and maybe i will talk a little bit more, 74% almost had never heard of the small business tax credit. 63% had never talked to their state senator. their assembly person or to the governor, which i think is a little scary and it's something that hopefully you as a commissioner will re[tpo-rpbs/] that we reinforce to our representatives. those who did need capital 2:1 and those who couldn't get capital versus those who can't get capital. so it's clearly a problem for those who need it. when you look at the hiring. almost twice as many people decreased their employment as increased their employment and as far as revenues, more people had decreased revenues in last yeah, versus increased revenues. looking this over, it's a little sobering, because there is a certain amount of frustration and negativity, but i thought those numbers would have improved given the economy. thank you for the opportunity to talk to you. >> scott, i want to say thank you for everything that you do on behalf of small business california and small business san francisco. i think it's amazing and this is a testamen

improvements are not subject to reclassifying the property as a higher tax rate that states law allows you to do that as retrofit. additionally we are looking into the loan process and these buildings maybe historic and landmarks. it would require a vote. with the mellow roos, they effectively become the voting body so they get to decide between the group when money is build out for these i am improvements that is repaid for their property taxes and gives them the mechanism without taking a loan individually. that is an interesting feature of it. if these properties change hands. the loan actually goes with it and the person who originated the loan is relieved from the debt. >> then in terms of the actual work that's being done, there was reference made before which is issued that i have been thinking about. in terms of making sure that the process for property openers owners who are complying with the law and somehow got financing and want to do the work and have to get to the planning department and planning of building inspection. what is your competence level that will our policy inte

. that includes a controversial tax on bank accounts to fund the bailout. >> people in cyprus brave the storm to protest outside parliament ahead of a crucial few hours for the country. inside, lawmakers are voting on a series of measures designed to help the financially stricken nation meet the terms of an international bailout package. few of the plan's details are known, even to eurozone officials in brussels, but an unpopular one of tax on savings could be back on the table, particularly on bank accounts with deposits of at least 100,000 euros. the plan needs to be in place by monday when the european central bank says it will withdraw financial aid for separate -- separate -- cypriot banks. >> a lot of people will definitely lose their jobs and benefits. >> cyprus needs to raise 5.8 billion in order to qualify for the bailout. its eurozone partners in the imf would then provide 10 billion euros in rescue loans. the fund raising measures under discussion include plans to restructure the country's second biggest lender and tapping state pension assets. >> all right, our correspondent is k

to reconcile these two documents. the house budget would balance after ten years. repeal obama care. no tax increases. the senate budget doesn't get to balance after ten years, it includes $1 trillion of tax increases, even some stimulus money to try to get the economy going. but it's significant that they're fighting at a lower level of intensity and turmoil. notice that the congress left for easter break without a crisis over a government shutdown. there was no crisis over potential debt limit, and government default earlier this year. could come back this summer but so long as it lasts, that's calming for the markets and good for the economy, and it may, lester, leave some space still for a compromise in which democrats would agree to changes in cuts in medicare and social security, and republicans would come up with a little bit more tax revenue, lester. >> all right, john harwood tonight, thank you. >>> president obama wrapped up his four-day visit to the middle east today, after helping israel and turkey end a three-year diplomatic dispute. that, in turn, will help the region deal wit
